Publisher's Summary

The fifth novel in the acclaimed cult favorite series starring Johannes Cabal, necromancer.
Johannes Cabal, a necromancer of some little infamy, has come into possession of a vital clue that may lead him to his ultimate goal: a cure for death. The path is vague, however, and certainly treacherous as it takes him into strange territories that, quite literally, no one has ever seen before. The task is too dangerous to venture upon alone, so he must seek assistance - comrades for the coming travails.
Assisted - ably and otherwise - by his vampiric brother, Horst, and by the kindly accompaniment of a criminologist and a devil, they will encounter ruins and diableries, mystery and murder, the depths of the lowest pit, and a city of horrors - London, to be exact.
Yet even though Cabal has risked such peril believing he understands the dangers he faces, he is still underestimating them. He is walking into a trap of such arcane complexity that even the one who drew him there has no idea of its true terrors. As it closes slowly and subtly around them, it may be that there will be no survivors at all.

Cabal is the main character and he stands out as he is an utter bastard but his verdammt soul makes him into a decent guy by accident.


Any additional comments?

Johannes Cabal never disappoints he is a great well rounded character and the story reads well. I have loved all the books I read including the short stories. I hope there is more to come as I am saddened now that no other series will compare....

- All mixed up

Loved it despite the rough spots

This book was ace, and I really enjoyed it despite the fact that it clearly skimped a few edits and re-takes. The text has occasional gaps ("started by her startling innocence") and the narrator has quite a lot of odd choices of word emphasis.
That aside, the increasing humanity of Johannes Cabal makes it increasingly difficult to keep the oddball flavour of these books going.
Still, recommended.
